Brand new construction costs more than homes built even five years ago. It’s a heady thought you could be the first owner, but buyers wonder if the new wears off. Shopping new construction homes in McAllen is about more than just bragging rights. When you get a brand new home, you receive some very real benefits.
Builders have more options than ever when it comes to improving energy efficiency in new construction homes. At WestWind Homes, we believe we have a responsibility toward our buyers and to the planet to build homes to be as energy-efficient as possible. Our homes win awards for their energy savings because our energy-efficient package includes the following:
- Air Cooling and Heating Systems – We install HVAC systems from the best manufacturers in the United States. We also seal ductwork with high-quality sealant to reduce air loss and maximize heating and cooling efficiency.
- Sealing System – Our experts seal windows, doors and every other place air can seep in and out of your home so temperature controlled air stays in and the elements stay out.
- Unique Ventilation Systems – We ventilate your attic to reduce temperatures and improve air circulation. Everything from your bathroom vent to your kitchen exhaust works to clean the air and improve energy efficiency.
- Independent Ratings – We have homes inspected and certified by an independent Certified Energy Rater who inspects insulation, lighting, appliances, ceiling fans and your HVAC system.
Sure, you could probably spend less and buy a fixer-upper, but that’s not everyone’s thing. Most buyers are busy. You don’t want to spend your weekend fixing the plumbing or figuring out why your appliances don’t work. You also don’t want to go to the expense and trouble of buying a home, then find out you have to come up with another huge chunk of change to replace the roof or fix the foundation.
Plus, older homes sometimes can be bad for your health. They’re more likely to contain materials like asbestos, lead paint, mold and other issues.
Our new homes in McAllen Tx come with low maintenance requirements and costs. When you first move in, all the major components are under warranty. We follow the most up to date building codes and safety regulations and install products with a reputation for being trouble-free.

When you drive through neighborhoods, you can usually tell from the exterior in what decade they were built. When you go inside, the difference is even more dramatic. You often find low ceilings, poor lighting, small closets and impractical floorplans.
Our new homes in McAllen Tx provide the opposite. They’re built with today’s lifestyle in mind with open floorplans, inviting indoor and outdoor spaces and thoughtful storage. High ceilings make the ample space feel even bigger and carefully placed bathrooms and bedrooms keep every family member happy.

Our communities are all in great locations central to schools, jobs, entertainment and shopping. But when you’re home, there’s plenty to do within walking distance. We offer amenities like clubhouses, outdoor entertaining areas, walking trails and more.
Most people don’t buy new construction with the intention of moving any time soon. But new homes in Mcallen Tx offer the peace of mind that comes with knowing you made a solid investment. You don’t have to keep a big reserve for repairs for the first several years you own your home, and if you buy in a good location your home will appreciate. If you decide to sell, you could stand to make a significant profit.
